On December 14, 1987 at 5:30 PM, Anthony Kuzniak, a resident of Perth Amboy, was found dead in his home on Parker Street. It is unknown at what time the homicide occurred. Kuzniak was found upstairs in his bedroom by a nearby tenant, Lynn Saunders.

Perth Amboy Man Battered

PERTH AMBOY – A man found slain in the bedroom of his Parker Street home Monday night had been battered repeatedly in the head with a blunt instrument, authorities said yesterday.

Police and Middlesex County investigators yesterday searched for clues in the slaying of Anthony Kuzniak, 59, whose partially clothed body was found by a boarder in Kuzniak’s home at 747 Parker St.

The victim’s upper chest, neck, and head were covered by a folded-over blanket, and the boarder found pornographic reading materials next to his body on the bed, according to police reports.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Alan A. Rockoff said there are no suspects in the case.

[…] Kuzniak’s body was found at 5:25 PM Monday by Lynn Saunders, who rented a room in a converted sun porch on the first-floor of the single-family home. The House is across from the railroad tracks near the old Union Carbide property.

“There is an ongoing investigation and nobody has been excluded from the investigation,” Rockoff said.

Saunders could not be reached for comment yesterday.

An autopsy performed by Dr. Kong L. Tan, deputy county medical examiner, attributed the cause of death to a brain hemorrhage caused by a fractured skull.

Rockoff said no murder weapon has been found.

But according to police reports, a crowbar with “wet liquid” on its tip was found on a bed in a first-floor bedroom fo the house. The victim was found in a second-floor bedroom.

“It has not been determined that that was a weapon,” Rockoff said.

Burglary did not appear to be a motive in the slaying, Rockoff said. Police said no items inside the house appeared to have been disturbed, although a thin gold chain was found on the stairway landing between the first and second floors. There was no sign of a forced entry.

Authorities and neighbors said Kuzniak’s home had been burglarized in September. An unknown amount of items were taken from the house at that time, Rockoff said.

OLD BRIDGE MAN FOUND SHOT TO DEATH IN VEHICLE

By PATTI DOMM

OLD BRIDGE — The body of Robert Adsit, 30, who police said was shot in the head and hand at close range, was found in a parked car in an isolated  portion of the township yesterday.

Adsit, who lived in the London Terrace apartments on Westminster  Boulevard, was found shortly after a caller told police at 1:50 PM to go to the Ticetown Road soccer field because a man was in a car there, according to Detective Bill Lynch. Authorities would not reveal whether the caller was male or female.

Lynch said Adsit was in the driver`s side of his wife`s car, a cream colored 1976 Buick Skylark, which was parked in the lot of the township-owned field. Investigators believe he was shot with a handgun at close range while at the field, located in a deserted section of the township about 100 yards from the Monmouth County border.

Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Kapsak said Adsit was shot more than once, probably while in the car, and police said he was struck in the face and right hand. The weapon was not recovered.

Police would not say whether they believed the assailant was in or out of the car. The driver`s-side window was half open when police arrived. There was no sign of struggle, nor were any of the car windows shattered, police said.

An autopsy was to be performed today by the Middlesex County Medical Examiner`s Office.

Police have been interviewing many of Adsit`s acquaintances, and investigators plan to speak with people from Onieda Trucking Co., Carlstadt, where the victim worked.

Adsit, a forklift driver on the midnight shift at Onieda, had returned from his job at about 9 AM. He and his wife, Florence, had gone to the Pathmark supermarket yesterday morning, police said. According to police, Adsit, a record buff, was unable to find a record he was looking for there.

He was believed by his wife to be on his way to the Sayrewood Shopping Center when he left their apartment at noon.

Adsit lived in North Jersey before moving to Old Bridge several years ago, a friend said. The friend, who asked not to be identified, described him as a person who would not have enemies.

"He`s the type of guy who would stop a fight," said the friend as he was leaving the police station yesterday. Another friend said Adsit, who was 6 feet 3 inches tall, was "a pussycat, despite his size."

Lynch said there was no known motive for the shooting as of last night. "Everybody I talk to said he was a nice guy, not a fighter, and had no enemies," the detective said.

A woman who answered the phone at Onieda last night said none of the employees working who were colleagues of Adsit wanted to talk. "We`re all pretty upset," she said.

Beside his wife, Adsit lived with his daughter and three step-children, police said.

Funeral arrangements [were] by the Michael Hegarty Funeral Home, 3700 Route 9.

Murder motive eludes police

by KAREN LEE

NEW BRUNSWICK- Robbery has been ruled out in the murder of a Woodbridge Township man over the weekend, but authorities are still trying to find a motive for the fatal bludgeoning.

Middlesex county investigators and township police are trying to reconstruct the last hours of the life of 73-year-old Walter Andrews of 35 Willry Street.

Andrews was found Sunday in a pool of blood outside his Pearle Avenue home, which he had been forced to vacate after a 1978 fire. He still returned to the site to walk and feed five dogs and pigeons, police said.

"We have not rued out anything yet, although it doesn`t appear he was robbed," county Prosecutor Richard Rebeck said.

Rebeck noted that the victim`s wallet, with money inside, was found nearby.

Andrews died of extensive hemorrhaging due to skull fractures, the prosecutor said. The fractures were caused by "four heavy blows," he said.

Rebeck declined to comment on police reports that a piece of wood, believed to be the murder weapon, was found on scene.

The body was wrapped in dog chain, Rebeck said, apparently because one of the dogs, a mutt, had been tied up nearby, and "went crazy" when the murder occurred. The dog was "friendly," he said, and apparently circled the body because he was upset.

Andrews was last seen by his land lady at 3PM on Saturday.

The landlady found the body at 11 AM Sunday between the abandoned house and garage, police said, after she had become concerned over his disappearance.

Rebeck said that Andrews routinely ate at the Woodbridge diner on Amboy Avenue, but that he had not done so the day he disappeared.

"We are canvassing people he knew," the prosecutor said.

"We are interested in finding out where he was between 3 PM Saturday and the time of his death."

Andrews was "well-known" in that section of the township, he said. According to landlady Susan Catenacci, the victim followed a routine closely.

He ate regularly at the Woodbridge Diner and then returned to the Willry Street room where he changed for work.

He worked as a security guard for Atlas Guard Service Inc. at the One Woodbridge Center office off Route 9. Andrews worked between 4:30PM and 9PM, she said.

He would have another meal at the diner after work, and go to Pearle Avenue to feed the pigeons and dogs, she said.

Mrs. Catenacci described him as a "gentle animal lover."

County Capt. Alex Belluscio agreed, noting that the victim "appeared to take good care of his pets."

Andrews had five dogs, including three Doberman pinschers, one German Shepherd, and the mutt, Rebeck said. He also kept coops of pigeons.

Two dogs perished in the September 1978 fire which "gutted" the Pearl Avenue home, Belluscio said.

Andrews, who served for 20 years in the armed services and was a veteran of World War II, had been divorced from his wife for many years, Rebeck said.

It is believed that there are two suspects, both white males in their early 20’s with dark hair and dark complexions, possibly of Italian or Spanish decent.

MAN SHOT TO DEATH, WOMAN WOUNDED BY INTRUDERS IN HIDDEN LAKE HOME

NORTH BRUNSWICK – A 37-year-old man, Marvin Sammel, is dead and his 37-year-old host, Barbara Gordon, is in stable condition today at Middlesex General Hospital, New Brunswick, after they were targets of a gun-wielding assassin Thursday night in her home, 25 Hidden Lake Drive, according to Middlesex County Prosecutor Richard S. Rebeck.

Sammel, who is separated from his wife, Marsha, of East Windsor, and Mrs. Gordon, who is divorced from her husband, Dr. Barry Gordon of Brooklyn, N.Y. were engaged in a friendly game of Scrabble in the family room when the doorbell rang, the prosecutor said.

When she opened the door two men rushed in, Rebeck added. The gunman forced Sammel to an upstairs bedroom, where two shots were fired into his head; the other man held Mrs. Gordon at knifepoint in the kitchen. The gunman then came to the kitchen and fired two quick shots at her head, one of which struck her, and she fell to the floor feigning death, Rebeck said.

After the intruders departed, the woman crawled to a telephone and alerted police.

Sammel died at 6 a.m. yesterday and Mrs. Gordon is in stable condition today, according to a hospital spokesman.

Police, who believe the two were shot with either a .32-caliber or .38-caliber snub-nosed revolver, have been unable to establish a motive for the shootings. There was no indication of anything having been taken from the sparsely furnished home, the prosecutor said.

Police throughout the east were alerted to be on the lookout for a late-model yellow Lincoln Continental with a landau roof that was seen leaving the neighborhood and heading toward Route 1. The license plate is believed to contain the letters KTY.

The car was believed to be occupied by three or four white males, who are believed to be armed and dangerous. One of the men was described as being of medium build with medium-length dark hair, wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt. A second man was described as being of heavy build with a thin mustache and also wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt. No descriptions were available of the other occupants.
